Day 1944: I don’t like …

I usually don’t like focusing on things I don’t like, but I like today’s title because I started writing a song this week with these lyrics:

I love a lot of people,

My friends know this is true,

Human beings are my favorite things

But I don’t like you.

I don’t like the melody I’ve written but I think I can make it better. I do like that every person I’ve sung that for has laughed at “But I don’t like you.”

Also, I woke up this morning thinking “I don’t like small talk. I like big talk.”

I don’t like being pushy, but how would you finish “I don’t like …”?

I don’t like that I took only three photos yesterday.




Are there any of those photos you don’t like?

There are several “I Don’t Like” songs on YouTube (here, here, and here):

I don’t like when I forget to thank people, so thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

  6. I read this in a McDonald’s where I stopped on my way home from a beach vacation. I don’t like ending vacations or fast food and I was hit by the thought that I really don’t like negativity.

  7. I hope you are okay, Ann. I am not sure why, but this blog makes me anxious. I don’t like feeling anxious.

  8. Sugar talk? Feed me!
